Overview of COVID-19
The 2019 Novel (New) Coronavirus called COVID-19 is a new disease, and we are still learning how it spreads, the severity of illness it causes, and to what extent it may spread in the United States.
COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. The virus passes between people who are close in contact with one another (within about 6 feet) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
The most common symptoms include: fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
